Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh saw his first on-court action since developing blood clots in one of his lungs in February, and was quickly up to his old tricks with teammate Dwyane Wade.
In the second quarter of Miami’s opening exhibition game against the Hornets, Bosh stood at the top of the key and threw a no-look bounce pass through his legs to a curling Wade, who finished through a pair of defenders for the score.
Charlotte ended up winning 90–77 on Sunday in its second preseason game. Kemba Walker led Hornets starters with 17 points while rookie Frank Kaminsky III scored nine points on 3-of-11 shooting. Bosh finished with a team-leading 14 points and seven rebounds. Dwyane Wade added 12 points and five rebounds. Heat rookie Justise Winslow posted nine points, three assists, two rebounds and two steals in his debut.
Bosh, a 10-time All-Star, averaged 21.1 points and seven rebounds in 44 games for Miami last season.
